The BEST Christmas!

My Christmas celebration this morning: I began with a bus ride around the island, which I do frequently, then I walked through my village. There was an impromptu fish market in the piazza near Sant Gaetano where I encountered a TV cameraman and cute reporter. Then to Santa Maria di Loreta where they had a scale-model of our village. As I looked at the familiar buildings in miniature the loudspeaker played John Lennon's "Imagine." Perfect! Then I went to La Tinaia for a pizza with mozzerella & anchovies, ice cream desert and a Coke. Then home!

Siimple things like this are the very BEST.

Yow, pangs of jealousy! Here, people look at me with a blank face when I try to describe pizza in Italy as they chow down on too-much-cheese Dominos. I love how the fish look like they're standing at attention.

Now that pizza was baked in a domed-top oven that burned wood, and the crust came out with a touch of gray ash on it...one of the many reasons they'll have to drag me out of here, kicking and screaming. I've found a home!
